on this michael reagan. that is the issue whether mitt romney gets elected, they show the will to do things that are not always popular. >> i think that is exactly right. we faced some very large problems. we have this so-called fiscal cliff that threatens the economy and florida's tax hikes and organized spending cuts. we are implementing the debt over the coming years. neil: that is one of the reasons that paul ryan did not vote for it he dodged the tough decision away. he wanted it to be even deeper and address these entitlement costs. but critics say that he is not effectively ceded mr. do you think he does that were changes that initiative tomorrow night? >> i think the governor romney is going to lay out a compelling case our debt problems in the risk of enormous tax hikes on the population that would stagnate growth and put us on a path with increased spending. rising standards of living, and contrasting that with president obama's vision of a social welfare state, moving towards this competent socio- economic expectations. neil: you know the problem may be that mitt romney has, and
the economy. if iran is reelected, despite his campaign. i think -- if mitt romney is elected, it will be despite his campaign. i think he grew up in a privileged environment, just like his father wanted to give everything he can. john mccain was someone isolated in his thinking somewhere along the way. also, his parents instilled upon him that because of those privileges, he had a responsibility and that his class had a responsibility to give back and to be a leader later. i think he wants to be president because he wants to make good decisions. he wants to reorganize the government so that it is efficient. he can tell you 137 things he wanted to get done. i do not think mitt romney can tell you what he wants to do. he just wants to be a good president. because of that, if he is leavihe is weaving around out there. he was a very progressive governor until he started looking presidentially and then veered over. in the primaries very much over on the right. he did not want 50%. he wanted 51.1%. i am not saying he does not have principles. he does not have a political philosophy
the election and romney's got to make up some ground. there's a new cnn poll that has the president with 70% of the vote among hispanics compared to romney's 26%. romney is hitting the president hard on immigration. he's saying he's playing politics with this issue, he's passing what he called a stopgap measure, this two-year program, instead of passing long-term reform like he promised four years ago. scott you can expect to hear more of this in the debate tomorrow night. >> pelley: jan, thanks very much. cbs news will bring you live covegef e debate tomorrow night beginning at 9:00 eastern time. we got a little good news today on the economy. overall, auto sales were up 13% last month from a yearefore. among the u.s. automakers, ford sales were unchanged, g.m.'s were up 1.5%, chrysler reported a 12% increase. there hasn't been enough good news like that on the economy. the recovery, of course, is painfully slow and one of the biggest reasons is the recession in europe. the 27 countries of the european union add up to the world's- largest economy, but they're reportrecordnemployment. in sp
don't know how the election is going to come up and make no predictions but i do ask myself if romney gets smashed i don't think the political problem is we have a center left problem and we have a far right party that is a structural problem. the republican party has gone nuts in my view. they've been at war -- there's been a simultaneous -- they've been simultaneously at war with physics at the same time. on the deficit and biological l2 mac, some of them for sure. so the question to me is what happens the morning after this election if romney loses. he wasn't far right enough. i wonder if the morning after the morning after. people would say we have gone too far to the right and we need a different republican party which i think the country desperately needs because it needs to be center-left and it's the only way we agree to get big compromises on these issues. >> can i add the role of history suggests the clinton and ronald reagan the second term as the productive term, the big achievement so it's hard to know whether the republican party will -- where they will push the blame if
the presidential election, and just 23 hours until the first presidential debate. mitt romney is in colorado where his handlers are desperately trying to teach him to be likable. romney advisers' chief concerns are the intangibles such as body language and demeanor. they want their candidate to balance his finely tuned arguments with personal warmth. his advisers knowledge that it will be difficult for him to endear himself to the country. his advisers have been nervous about how romney's intermittent anger would play in a one-on-one debate with obama. here are some of the primary debate memories haunting team romney. >> $10,000 bet? i'm running for office for pete's sake. >> i'm mitt romney and yes, wolf, that's also my first name. >> will you follow your father's example? >> maybe. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. >> the newspaper -- >> you get 30 seconds -- this is the way the rules work here is that i get 60 seconds -- >> no, but the american people want the truth. >> anderson -- >> you say you knew. >> would you please wait are you just going to keep talking? >> oh, yes. policing the rules. alw
's 34/52 rating. and he lost that election. tonight, ann romney seems sure that the country will soon realize how lucky we are that mitt romney is running for president. >> i know he's very well prepared. he's focused, he's very bright. i think the country will be blessed by having someone with his skill set, his experience and his -- just his goodness. to be able to run this country. this guy does care that he's out there. and he's a person with compassion. >> first lady michelle obama did not attempt to lower expectationings for her husband today. >> he doesn't need much advice. he's a very good debater. so i do tell him to have fun and relax and just be himself because the truth is if he's the barack obama the country has come to know and trust, he's going to do a great job. >> the new nation nbc news poll shows that among likely voters president obama polls at 49% and mitt romney at 46%. tonight, night silver of the new york times blog, forecasts that on november 6 obama will win 318 votes and mitt romney will win 219. and president obama's chance of winning the election is now at

the first question and mitt romney having the last word. but with little more than a month to election day, and early voting already under way in 35 states, our new msnbc news/wall street journal poll shows just how much magic mitt will have to bring tonight to change this game. in the national polling, a whisper of hope for romney as he trails the president by three point, 49 to 46, just within the margin of error. the problem for mr. romney, well, presidential elections are decided by electoral votes. and in that puzzle, mitt's chances are starting to crumble like a poorly constructed game of genga. it's still a close race in virginia and florida, with the president up by two in the old dominion. it's ohio with the president opening up a lead of eight points in the buckeye state, where voting is under way. with ohio joining pennsylvania, are iowa and new hampshire turning increasingly blue, that puts the president at 265 electoral votes. mitt romney would have to run the table of every other swing state to get to victory. and clearly, romney's so-called supporters are now reaching for de
romney if elected. that could be a stumbling block for both of them. >>shepard: thank you from our capitol hill newsroom. thank you. representatives from both candidates will be coming up in a moment. we will see how each responds to tough questions about the campaign and what each wants to hear from the other side. also, a manhunt on the border this afternoon. federal agents trying to fine the people who killed one of their own. the latest on the investigation on a very busy afternoon of news. we are live from denver. why not give it a shot? carry on. now you can test-drive snapshot before you switch. visit progressive.com today. perfect golden color. rich in fiber. my dad taught me, and i taught my son out there. morning, pa. wait... who's driving the...? ♪ 99 bushels of wheat on the rm, 99 bushels of wheat ♪ [ male announcer ] yep, there's 8 layers of whole grain fiber in those mini-wheats® biscuits... to help keep you full... ♪ 45 bushels of wheat ...all morning long. there's a big breakfast...

election reveal about the respected leadership styles of obama and romney? >> probably not much at this point. >> well, this panel is over. [laughter] >> see you later. >> so you can extrapolate a few things from president obama's first term that might be instructive. he isn't a manager. he is not come he doesn't have a history of managing things, so you bring in a lot of good well-trained smart people, given the tasks and you try to lead a government. and in the case of governor romney, who has been a governor, who is a business guy, he's run the olympics. i think his attitude would be efficiency, i'm going to come in and look at running government like a business, which sometimes isn't the right answer because government isn't a business. you can always find efficiencies, and you should always be looking for efficiencies, but i haven't seen a good example yet of a business person to come into government and make it run like the business. there's a lot of talk about that but we forget the cultures are very different, and the presumed outcomes are different as well. but i think
romney will. >> charlie cook, a prognosticator who seems to think the election will, quote, it will require a massive screwup by president obama or some international event that just shakes everything up. romney's got a week to turn this thing around." if something doesn't happen soon, republicans will panic. how much is riding on tonight's debate? i want to go back out to erick. >> i wouldn't say it's a complete law, but yeah, i tend to think mitt romney is building things. people are voting around the country and that's just the reality. republicans can be made at me, but it is. i really am hesitant of locking these things in with a month to go overall. because as charlie pointed out, events do change things rapidly towards an election. >> how about the stories we are circulating from yesterday with the done nors moving their money to the congressional races, richard. >> well, i think you'll see that on the republican side. a lot of money, though, still in this race. so on either side. they won't worry about money. but i agree with erick, governor romney really needs to d

by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> biden clarified his remarks saying, quote, the middle class was buried by policies that romney and ryan supported. the romney campaign tries to make the stick calling a conference call and then holding a press conference in denver this morning. no doubt we'll hear more about the comments tonight from romney as he tries to draw attention away from his own 47% remark. there is a quick look at tonight's format. there are no opening statements. the president will answer the opening questions. the debate will be divided into six 15-minute segments. the president and romney will each get two minutes to answer an initial question in each topic area but then timing will be left to the moderator's discretion. since obama won a coin toss he won the choice and romney got the choice of if he wants the first or second closing statement. he will be the last person you hear from at tonight's debate. it's going to be a good one. it is fitting that the debate is in colorado. both candidates have spent a lot of time in this state. recent polin
that means we need to stop digging by electing romney the next president of the united states. the republican ticket quick to adopt ryan's slogan. a suburban cop is in and the royal treatment in england and other european countries today they say he helped him win the ryder cup. we are in the car and i let him know don't worry about it i will get you there on time. pat roland's was the man behind the wheel and today he is being held a hero in europe. profiled on the bbc even in european news anchors credited with giving mcelroy to the final cut on the final day. he was staying here at the hotel in lumbar with all of the other players from team europe and usa but unlike the other players he had gotten his schedules mixed up on sunday, just minutes before his start time at my dinaedinah he wasn't there. i started to panic. , he was safe but very late, that's when this american cop show that even though he rooted for the rival team it wouldn't keep him from being a good sport. mcelroy got to the chorus and then got a come-from-behind win for europe over the usa. no good deed ever goes on finish
on election day. the romney campaign isn't really mounting a full-force effort in pennsylvania. they understand that it's probably lost. >> and looking at this nationwide as we've seen it in the other states, these are mostly republican-led efforts to institute these laws. and we've had the courts saving us, state courts saving us from the outcomes of these laws. >> absolutely. and in pennsylvania, voters need to get this. these are elected supreme court judges in pennsylvania. so it really matters that you go all the way down that ballot. because these judges, just like other politicians, are elected officials. it's very important that people pay attention to who's on the bench. and as you've been saying who's on the united states supreme court because these kind of laws get appealed. these kinds of cases are critical to peoples' rights. >> we did that segment here recently where "the west wing" cast reunited to do a commercial about voting for judges and the importance of voting for judges and a particular judge, candidate mccormick in michigan. this is what it's about. the j

by electing mitt romney. >> reporter: the latest abc news/"washington post" poll shows the race for president is still very close, which means every word and gesture tonight could impact the election. brandi hitt, abc news, denver. >> thanks to brandi hitt. abc's coverage of tonight's debate begins at 9:00 eastern, 6:00 pacific. >>> now, we turn to the trouble at american airlines. and actually progress on two fronts this morning. there is new movement in the bitter labor dispute between the airline and its pilots union. and also, the mystery of the seats that came loose during three, separate flights may have been solved. abc's tahman bradley is tracking all of the developments. good morning, tahman. that safety issue with those loose seats. what are we hearing now? >> reporter: well, rob, american airlines is now blaming the loose seats on clamps that were not installed properly. either by the airline's own crews or an outside contractor. the three incidents over the past week forced two emergency landings. and american scrambled to inspect its boeing 757s. some of the jets use a different
are at historic highs among youth today. >> the problem romney has is he says if i'm elected president i will do the following things. the problem is when he was governor he actually raised the debt to the highest level per capita at any place in america. he increased tuition. and he increased taxes. those aren't the things he's saying on the campaign trail. that's just what he did as governor. >> so here's the thing i would say to you, governor. if governor romney's track record is relevant, then president obama's track record is relevant. and under president obama the debt has gone to $16 trillion -- he has racked up under his presidency more debt in a single term than every president combined before him. >> that was true with reagan, carter, nixon. >> you have to sit and deal with that track record. >> one other issue we haven't talked about yet, one of these 15-minute segments is going to be about health care. what is the question for mitt romney? i think he should double down and just explain the difference between romney care and obama care. he should own it. >> good luck with that. there'
mitt romney's going to win this election because of what barack obama said as candidate obama. i think he can look just at his record over the last four years and paint a vision of where mitt romney wants to take the country. and that will be make mitt romney victorious, not some video seven years old or something like that. >> it was five years old. >> five years old. >> when you saw that videotape, bill, i'm sure you took a look at it once again over the past 24 hours and you heard the president speaking about his former pastor, the reverend jeremiah wright. did it make you feel squeamish? what did you think when all of a sudden we're hearing about reverend wright? >> no. look. that's an issue that was litigated and talked about very specifically for a good period of time during the '08 cycle. so i think the american people have made up their minds of who president obama is, what kind of ideas he has about what our country is and where he wants to take it. so i don't think that people will want to relitigate that. the notion that mitt romney's campaign had nothing to do with this i f
mitt romney will take to the stage for the first presidential debate of the 2012 election. lauren: peter barnes is live at the heart of the action in ben very. peter, both candidates want ear of undecided tonight. what will they be listening for? >> hey, lauren, very good. just in case you weren't sure about where we are, we are at the university of denver because the university is trying to be very low-key about all this and isn't trying to, you know, get any promotion from this or trying to, trying to maybe find new students or anything like that. it is very low-key, oh, anyway. listen, of course the big issue for both of these gentlemen, more so for governor romney is to get to these undecided voters, the president wants them to seal the deal. governor romney needs them badly according to the latest polls we've seen. today's "wall street journal" poll shows governor romney six points down. "wall street journal" poll, sorry, today's "wall street journal" poll shows him six points down. "fox news poll" shows him behind by eight points higher. so, kevin madden, governor romney's p
years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney as the next president of the united states. [ applause ] >> reporter: the vice president later said that the middle class pain was due to bush policies. that romney and ryan want to repeat. the debate symbolizes a problem for the president. even though the economic collapse happened under bush, four years later, families are still hurting. many in the middle class are barely treading water. all guaranteed fodder for tomorrow night's debate in denver. the first lady is making her way there. first stop in ohio. >> are you fired up? >> reporter: where early voting began today. >> are we going sit back and watch everything we worked for and fought for to just slip away? >> reporter: ann romney got to colorado before her. >> we have a debate coming up. we're excited about that. we're focused. >> reporter: family members' nerves are on edge, as josh romney confided to diane in august. >> i hate the debates. trying to sit there and be cool and keep a smile on your face. inside you want to fa
before the election. the campaign reorganized, romney pulled his advisors together. they decided on a new strategy which was to get tough and get specific and romney went on to win that 2002 race for governor in massachusetts. so we will see if he can repeat history here with these debates starting tonight. dagen and connell? connell: peter barnes reporting from denver for us. let's go to ron paul now, republican congressman from texas and former presidential candidate himself. he's calling in today on the telephone from texas. congressman paul, always good to talk to you. if a paul supporter is watching the debate tonight and needs to be convinced by romney, what does romney have to do, do you think? >> make sure he sounds a little bit different than the other and be convincing that his policies are a lot different. many people that joined the freedom movement were frustrated, you know work the whole possess because they can't -- you know, with the whole process because they can't see enough difference. when it comes to foreign policy, they are very similar. with the federal reserve, it
if mitt romney now wants to make this election a choice and he's right. there is a choice. it is a debate about the role of government and creating a civil society, a society where we look out for one another but maybe give people the tools to become independent. or we can choose mitt romney. you remember what mitt romney told eye owe wants back in june about president obama. >> he wants to hire more government workers. we need more firemen more policemen, more teachers. did he not get the message in wisconsin, the american people did. it is time for us to cut back on government and help the american people. >> jennifer: so do the american people want us to cut the jobs of firemen policemen and teachers? well, sharp scrutiny on the role and the influence of public sector employees and their unions is the focus of the controversial new book, "new york times" best selling book from author and citadel political professor mallory factor. it is called "shadow bosses". rob taxpayers blind. mallory factor is joini
